    John Romita Sr. The Amazing Spider-Man Marvelmania Poster Illustration Original Art Signed by Jack Kirby (Marvel, 1970). Jack Kirby was contracted by Marvelmania (Marvel Comics' fan-service outlet) to produce a number of images for posters. Some were used as provided, other were redrawn by other artists using Kirby's designs as a basis. In this case, John Romita Sr. took the overall design and layout, but replaced the Kirby robots in the original design with two of Spider-Man's greatest villains! This original ink over graphite artwork by Romita Sr. has been hand-colored by an unknown hand to match Kirby's original color design for his own version, and signed by Kirby next to Doc Ock's head. The image area measures 16" x 24". The logo is a printed paste-up that has been painted over. There is also a lightly discolored circle on the lower left which is where the original paste-up for the Romita Sr. signature would have been. Pinholes in the corners, and some light handling wear in the margins. The work was hand-colored with watercolors and white paint. In Very Good condition.
